This latest entry in the celebrated RIDGE RACER series turbo-charges the racing genre with full environmental and vehicular destruction. The City Creator lets players design their own impressive urban tracks in minutes using the powerful yet accessible in-game tools, then share their creations online. The signature arcade handling and drifting elements that fans have come to know and love combined with explosive action takes Ridge Racer Unbounded to the next level of competitive racing. With a new car selection including powerful vintage muscle cars, players will take over every alley and street corner in Shatter Bay in the most visceral and destructive racing game of 2012.

In single player mode, players indulge in high speed destruction to impress Kara Shindo, leader of the Unbounded gang, and grow their street cred in Shatter Bay.  Domination Race encourages players to destroy everything in sight including rival cars, the environment and other traffic on the road.  Survival Race gives the player one car and one chance to avoid destruction to finish in first place. Additional game modes include action challenges focused on taking out other cars, drifting and duelling.

In addition to the single player game, racers can take their driving skills online against other players in several multiplayer modes and challenge them on tracks they designed themselves. The real fun begins when players battle it out behind the wheel to dominate each other’s creations. The race is on to stay in control.


Ridge Racer Unbounded is released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in Europe on March 2nd and in North America March 6th. For more information you can also vist the official Ridge Racer Unboubded website.
